  1. You've got me curious... what made the show silly?
  2. I was just able to book a B2B on the Apex in February 2022. Went thru one of the popular online TA's , was able to book the first one online, and it wouldn't let me book the second because the booking engine saw it as duplicate booking. Talk to the TA the next day (miracle of miracles - they are sooooo busy now) and he was able to get me on the second one. I asked him about the CDC rules, but he wasn't aware of any. ????? Anyway, we have reservations!
  3. So, Eden is not functioning the same way that the 270 lounge is? When we were on the Anthem of the Seas, we were in that lounge very frequently, not only for the cafe's food, but Zumba classes, the shows, a great place to just hang out that wasn't quite as busy as other places could be. Is Eden only a food place and bar? When we were on the Anthem, our stateroom was all the way aft on deck 6. The the upper level of the 270 degree lounge was in the same vicinity. It was soooo easy to leave our room, escape the elevator crowd, and duck through the unmarked plain doors to that level.
  4. Hi! I'm considering booking a stateroom on deck 6 on the Apex, and am wondering if there is a door entering the deck 6 level of Eden from the aft stateroom area. The design appears to be similar to RCCL's Anthem, with the 270 degree lounge in the aft, to which we found unmarked access doors to the upper level of the lounge. Does anyone know if the Apex is similar? Or is the stateroom area completely separated and inaccessible from the Eden Lounge? Thanks in advance for your help.
  5. Having to do with Buckingham Palace... how far in advance does one need to buy tickets? Can it be done a few days before or must it be done way in advance?
  6. Actually, we’re still hearing different stories. Just want everyone to be aware that things could be a little screwy.
  7. Just to let everyone know... we are currently on the celebrity reflection and docked in costa maya today. The NCL Dawn and RCCL Symphony of the Seas were here too. ALL tours were cancelled. The tour operators were on strike, but they didn’t tell us until we got on shore and showed up for the excursion. What we didn’t know and wish we did was that the regular taxi drivers were available outside the gates and would take you to any beach club on the Malecon. So if you have an excursion make sure the strike is not still on It apparently was a last minute surprise, and there was a lot of misi
  8. I've done some shopping around, and almost always end up in the same place. But I never got THAT much in OBC. Wonder what I'm doing wrong. But we don't cruise in suites, and maybe that's part of the reason. So many times the amount of OBC return is linked to how much cruise fare you paid.
  9. Thanks for this review. It sounds like he was your guide and stayed with you all day? Did he point out any animals/birds/etc along the way? And how long did you spend in the park? (Cahiuta) The more details the better Thanks in advance
  10. I see that Celebrity has a ship's tour to the National Aviary. Being a birder but not necessarily eager to go into completely unfamiliar areas without a guide, I am curious about the excursion. I see many wonderful comments. But is the allotment that the ship gives you enough time? 3 and a half hours start to finish (including transportation) doesn't sound like enough time to do it justice. I see there is supposed to be a shuttle to get there, but details on using it are sketchy, and I have seen no mention of the return trip. Does anyone have more info on any of this? Would apprec
  11. HI Merion Mom!! Long time no see! Hope to meet up with you again soon. Hope all is well.
  12. I hope someone can clear this up for me. I understand that there is a nightly event on the DL. There are also three drinks loaded onto your card, available for use during the same hours as the "event", but available at many bars on the ship. Somewhere I read that the drink vouchers were even required in the DL, and that three was the limit, regardless of being inside the lounge or not. I have also heard that the drinks in the lounge are unlimited, and the vouchers are still available for use elsewhere, as long as it was during the correct hours. So I've heard it going bo
  13. Can one watch others having the Dolphin Experience here? Or is the vista completely cut off from on-lookers? Our daughter and family are booked to do it, and I would love to observe my granddaughter have this thrill. If we can see it, how close are we allowed to get? I'd love to get some good pictures. Thank you!
  14. Yes, I was confused, apparently. You are right - here is the reply I received from his assistant, Nicole, early this morning. I was impressed by the speed of the response. "You and your friends are welcome to come to the restaurant any time without a reservation and order a la carte. All of our tables have an ocean view. Unfortunately, we have to reserve our lounge chairs on the beach for our hotel guests and all-inclusive packages. Of course, if we are not sold out, we will do our best to find you all a spot on the beach. Right now we don't look too busy on your arrival day s
  15. I just checked Blue Kay's website, and prices have gone WAY up. $49.95 pp for adults and $19.95 for kids 6-12. That's way out of the range for us, since we rarely eat or drink much off the ship but the snorkeling and Jaime himself are such a big draw. I'm going to try to email him and see if that's the only pricing structure he has. We'd been to Nohoch Kay years ago, and truly enjoyed the experience. I truly miss the old days of ala carte. I'll check back in with any answers.
